Washington (CNN) – Congressman Joe Wilson will deliver the first ever live response to a State of the Union via Facebook on Wednesday.
The South Carolina Republican is most known for blurting out “You lie!” during President Obama’s last speech to a joint session of Congress. Wilson will deliver an address live on his Facebook page approximately 30 minutes after Obama concludes the State of the Union.
“Just like you and I would talk with our friends through the Internet [Wilson] is going to sit there with a Mac Book and camera on it and talk directly with people across the country,” Wilson campaign manager Dustin Olson told CNN.
Wilson will also be taking a select amount of questions people submit during his live address. After, the recorded video will be placed on Wilson’s YouTube page.
This news comes less than 24 hours after the White House announced it will ask YouTube users to submit questions that President Obama will answer on YouTube a week after the State of the Union.

So apparently you behave poorly and you get rewarded! Now, Republicans, that is a great message to send to the children on Facebook!! I think I for one will be "defriending" Mr. Wilson...No thank you. Now if Ron Paul or Olympia Snowe were giving the response, I would be all ears. Let's pick an intelligent and respectful Republican please!!!! AND I am NOT a democrat.
Joe Wilson is delilvering the GOP's response to the State of The Union? This isn't a sick joke? Surely most Republicans are not on board with this plan. How can one on the outside of either major party take the Republicans seriously? Joe Wilson? I so badly want to be able to scream "You Lie!"
I am so embarressed that it is highly regarded to be disrespectful to the President of the United States!!!
I hated bush and can't believe the trouble he caused us but I never spoke out loud..........
I am white upper class but I totally think it's a racial issue--no one yelled out at Bush's State of the Union Addresses and belive me we thought he really was the village idiot!!!!
United States of America has become a laughing-stock.
Who cares what some politician who is only known for being rude thinks? I sure don't. Yes, Obama lies. All politicians do. Tell us something we don't know, and do it a more professional manner, and people might just take you seriously. But continue to act like a flake and that is exactly what people will think you are.
What a pig. Is he going to prove his manhood by screaming at the President during a state of the union address. Send the cracker back to the crackerjack box...
Wilson is a nauseating slug – those who admire him are clearly those who admire nauseating slugs...
Congressman Wilson I have two words for you:
Before "you lie", Joe Wilson was the name of my plumber. Now he has a million braindead Facebook followers. Anyone still think it was a slip of the tongue?
Unbelievable. The man should be barred from the audience!
Pkm why you get off your dam lazy buts and help obama he wants to work with you he cares tell russ limbut to get off his lazy kister and be a man
I wonder if wilson would have shouted out at the president of the united states (you lie) if the president had been white.Everybody new then president Bush had problem with telling the truth and not one democrat ever disrespected Bush in such a manner,so you tell me",was it because he had no respect for a president of color.

I wont be on facebook talkin to him in my heart i believe he is a racist no he will not admit it but sooner or later it will show.
Rep. Joe Wilson did the unthinkable when he shouted you lie at the United States president as he addressed a joint session of congress. I think Mr. Wilson should lie low because history will not be kind to him. The only reason Wilson heckled the president is because the president is an African American and Wilson wanted to show how disdainful and disrespectful he is of African Americans.
Oh this will be hilarious! Another ignorant racist SC politician making stupid comments about issues he doesn't even understand. If Republicans are relying on SC Republicans, they are in deep, deep trouble. It is the Republican capital of hate, fear-mongering, lies, and racism- all those "purity test" values they live by! Wilson is a moron. This will be even funnier than the disaster of Jindal last year.
Interesting that he has a Facebook page but will not allow emails to his offical goverment issued email from out of South Carolina.
Since all member of Congress vote on bills that affect all american, we should have access to them without going through Facebook/
I hope Joe Wilson will say again, YOU LIE! because that's the truth. Obama lied, America died; anyone who dispute it is a fool.
So it sounds like whatever Obama will say (no matter good or bad) Wilson will have a rebuttal... Um... Why do we want to hear from this disrespectful clown again??? Anyone???
We have one of the brightest Presidents in a long long long time, and he's getting derailed by these republican jokers, then blamed for doing nothing???
Im not stupid, too bad most of the country is.....
It is amazing what disrespect of the leader of your country can do for you.
BRING IN THE CLOWNS
The liars are asking their liar lap dog to lie once again.
Ah, this is the cherry on the top of the diasterous week the Obama administration has had:
1) Scott Brown takes the Massachusetts Senate race
2) Marion Berry (D) of Arkansas announces his retirement.
3) SCOTUS protects Free Speech rights.
4) Beau Biden announces he won't run for Delaware Senate seat.
Now Joe Wilson will critique the State of the Union.
Poetic Justice does exist.
